Baby Quasar Red and Baby Quasar MD Review
Baby Quasar provides professional-grade light therapy devices for spa quality facial treatments in the comfort of your own home. The company manufactures three powerful photo rejuvenation products for personal use known as the Baby Quasar Red, Baby Quasar MD and the Baby Quasar Baby Blue. The Baby Quasar Red and Baby Quasar MD are almost exactly the same except the Baby Quasar MD was originally designed for doctors and is 3 times more powerful than the Baby Quasar Red (for double the price). The Baby Quasar Red, also known as "BabyQ", and the Baby Quasar MD use proprietary light therapy technology called SequePulse, which is based on the same technology that NASA uses to accelerate healing for astronauts in space. The technology helps improve skin's tone and texture by emitting four wavelengths of red, amber and infrared light. The lights work together to increase blood flow and circulation, as well as stimulate collagen production and healing. Over the recommended 6-week treatment cycle, the device noticeably reduces the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, pore size, rosacea and hyperpigmentation. The result is a healthy, youthful and radiant complexion. As an added bonus, the devices can also help ease muscle and joint pain caused by injury or arthritis. We will take a closer look at the Baby Blue tool in a separate review, but, basically, it is for people with acne prone skin. For the best results, Baby Quasar suggests alternating treatments between the Baby Quasar Red (or Baby Quasar MD if you don't mind spending extra) and the Baby Blue device. All devices are 100% natural, completely painless, non-invasive and recommended by dermatologists for all skin types. While they aren't meant to completely replace your current skincare routine, they will help enhance and improve the effectiveness of the products you are using without the irritating side effects associated with typical anti-aging or acne treatments.
You can purchase Baby Quasar devices on BabyQuasar.com or on other online retailers such as SkinStore.com or Dermstore.com. The Baby Quasar Red is approximately $399, while the Baby Quasar MD is around $795. The Baby Quasar Baby Blue is about $348, or you can get the Baby Quasar Red and Baby Blue "Power Pack" for about $700. You can sometimes get discounts on the products, but you just want to keep an eye on how the discount site impacts the manufacturer's warranty.
We give the Baby Quasar Red and the Baby Quasar MD a B+ because they are both amazing devices that you can use at home to help reduce redness, inflammation and the signs of aging with relatively minimal side effects. While they are more cost effective than light therapy sessions at a spa, we had to deduct points because both devices are very expensive and some customers didn’t feel they saw enough of a difference in their skin. No product can work miracles, but, if you can afford either the Baby Quasar Red or MD, it sounds like they could be a great addition to your skincare routine to help keep your complexion youthful and radiant.
There aren't many reviews of the Baby Quasar Red or the Baby Quasar MD online, but most are relatively positive. The Baby Quasar Red has received a 3.7/5 on Amazon.com (43 reviews), a 4.1/5 on Makeupalley.com (25 reviews), a 4.3/5 on SkinStore.com (18 reviews) and a 4/5 on Dermstore.com (11 reviews). There was significantly less customer feedback on the Baby Quasar MD, but it did receive a 4.3/5 on SkinStore.com (26 reviews). On BabyQuasar.com, it says that the Baby Quasar Red was a NewBeauty Magazine Beauty Choice Award Winner in 2010 and 2011. The devices are expensive, but, if you get photo rejuvenation therapy with an esthetician or dermatologist, it can cost almost $2000 for a full treatment cycle. From that perspective, the Baby Quasar isn't a bad deal, especially since you can do as many treatments as you want from the comfort of your own home.
Most of the complaints that I read were from people who didn't notice any difference in their skin or had some issues with their device malfunctioning (usually the power cord). Lots of reviews question whether the device is worth the money. The most reputable analysis that I came across on the Baby Quasar devices, as well as on other similar treatments, was in a June 2007 New York Times article called "You Can Smooth or Zap but Will the Results Hit Home". You can Google the article easily if you are interested, but, to summarize, it was far from a resounding endorsement. For the customers that had issues with the product itself or the power cord, it sounds like the quality of Baby Quasar's customer service was a little spotty. So, if you are willing to shell out a couple hundred dollars for this device, my suggestion is that you should consider forgoing the discount website in order to get the 5 year warranty on BabyQuasar.com.
I personally haven't used the Baby Quasar and don't have any friends that use it. Unfortunately, it's currently just a little out of my price range, and, at 27, my wrinkle situation hasn't become critical yet. Despite some of the negative reviews I came across in my research, it sounds like the device do work for many people, and I am dying to try the combination of the Baby Quasar Red with the Baby Blue treatment regime.
